Fallout 76 Power Armor Edition Owners Might Be Seeking Legal Action

Fallout 76

With no more than a year between the game’s announcement and release, Bethesda did plenty to fill the wait with information about Fallout 76 and fanfare over its forthcoming release. One of their biggest celebrations of the title came in the form of the Power Armor Edition, which promised such goodies as a Power Armor helmet and a canvas bag. However, the final version did not entirely deliver on these promises, which has now prompted its customers to prepare for legal action against Bethesda.

Several fans on Reddit have begun sharing messages with each other giving precautions in case they wish to seek legal action in the future against Bethesda. It seems that the company has acknowledged the complaints of buyers over the canvas bag in the Power Armor Edition being replaced by a much cheaper and lower quality nylon bag. As a form of compensation, Bethesda has offered to give those who purchased the Power Armor Edition $5 worth of Atoms in Fallout 76. However, according to one HoolioStretchRedwood on Reddit, this may come with a legal caveat.

According to the Redditor, accepting Bethesda’s restitution may forfeit you the right to pursue any further legal action, such as a potential class action lawsuit which could offer a higher amount for each individual. While no official class action lawsuit has been started yet, Hoolio believes one can happen later, citing Bethesda’s blatant false advertising.

As he states, “Whatever happen’s Bethesda’s team of suits will lose, they haven’t got a leg to stand on, they advertised one thing, and gave out another without any notification to consumers.” Time will tell if these fans collectively act together against Bethesda, but there certainly seems to be enough fans together to wield the legal system as powerfully as a suit of Power Armor.
